Shrek has slowly taken over the kitchen...I do have a hard time finding some things now. Then he had a fit about one drawer and said that the next time he looked in there for something he was going to toss everything. So I went out there and moved ANYTHING that he could possibly need from that drawer to other drawers. Now it's MY drawer and he can't find anything

When I called for the catalog I actually got it just a couple weeks later with my address hand-written on it.
Just about a week or so ago I got a second, different catalog. My name and address were typed on and I had a customer number. I felt so special.

I have always gotten a catalog with my order.

the closest penzey's to me is more than an hour's drive, in richmond. might as well be four hours away, in baltimore, i'll never drive that far for anything again, except maybe to get to the ocean. when i did live in baltimore for a brief while, we spent a lot of our free time hanging out at the harbor. there was a mccormick's spice plant there, and the air was always filled with the aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, for many blocks around. lovely. i was well stocked with spices then, and you could get them all for next to nothing by buying the 'irregular' tins.

it will be interesting to see which will arrive first, my penzey's catalog, or cg's mil's recipe for spaghetti sauce, the one that is made with celery seed and salt.
i have much to look forward to. i hope cg feels like typing soon, as i have begun to crave spaghetti of late. i keep remembering the workmen with their bowls of cg's 'green' sauce and dipping bread. also, i can practically smell the simmering all-day sauce already. i hope to have on hand all of the seasonings needed for this special spaghetti sauce. who knows what other surprise ingredients will be called for?

oh hi, cg. i didn't see you standing there. just thinking out loud... no, no rush on the recipe....which sunday in may is mother's day this year, i wonder, do you know?

Addie, that's the one I go to. It's about a half hour away.

I'm due for a visit as soon as I inventory my spices and toss some older ones.

I love that I live 10 minutes from a Penzy's, what I don't love is that if I try to go on a weekend there is no parking and I'm willing to walk a good distance! It's a really popular shopping center with awesome restaurants and shops.

I'm gonna have to get there on a weekday afternoon, soon!

There you go CG. The vote is in and Penzeys wins a unanimous decision.

And, apparently, does my preview of my MILs spaghetti sauce recipe.

Guess I know what I have to do during one of the two baseball games I'll listen to today...

I've used celery seed in tomato pasta sauce my whole life. Just 1/2 tsp to a quart of sauce. OR I use a 1/2 cup of diced celery.
